TOCCOA — Heavy rains have created some major headaches in Stephens County.
As the rain came down Wednesday morning, numerous roads in Toccoa and Stephens County experienced flooding.
Stephens County Randy Shirley told WNEG Radio many of the county’s creeks are flooding their banks.
“Water is coming over the creek banks on some rural roads,” Shirley said. “On Deerchase Road off Crawford Hills, the bridge over the creek has collapsed so folks will not be able to cross it.”
Another affected road Wednesday morning was the Highway 123 corridor, where flooding in some spots made the road almost impassable.
Other side roads off 123, such as Fernside Drive, East Tugalo Street, Lake Louise, and Fern Valley roads, all reported flooding this morning.
And all that wet weather is causing trees to fall, blocking roads.
County road crews and Georgia DOT crews worked to clear roads all morning and will continue to work throughout the day.
The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has issued a Flood Warning until 5:45 p.m. Wednesday for Stephens County.
